    reading file in turbo c

    Code:
    sir, maam can you help me again with my program, this is my code: 
    
     #include<string.h>
     #include<stdio.h>
      char code1[8],name[20],code[8];
      int level;
    
     main()
     {
     FILE *fp;
     fp=fopen("emp.txt","r");
    
      clrscr();
      printf("Enter code: ");
      gets (code1);
    
     do{
        fscanf(fp,"%s %s %d",name,code,&level);
      if (strcmpi(code,code1)==0)
       {
        printf("employee name:%s\n",name);
        printf("employee code:%s\n",code);
        printf("employee salary level: %d\n",level);
       }
      }while(!feof(fp));
     fclose(fp);

    Ok here are a few points:
    1. Give space(remove commas) in your file data for fscanf to read it properly like this-
    juan_dela_cruz A02-0001 2
    mary_palm A02-0003 1
    pedro_santos A02-0005 3
    2. clrscr() is in the header conio.h, so include it
    3. Dont use gets ever. Use fgets instead.
    4. Better if you avoid using TC, coz its outdated.
    5. Use code tags only for posting codes.
    HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND.......

    When you print out code and code1, you can see they are exactly the same, except for their case, *right* ?

    No newlines or end of string char's in one code, and not in the code1 you're trying to match up?
